, right now. >> as barack obama embarks on the sixth year of his presidency, hope and change seems to be looking a whole lot more like doom and gloom. before we bring in tonight's audience for their thoughts on where they stand on the president, some of the numbers that have ---for starters, when barack obama entered the white house back in january 2009, his approval rating had stood at a very healthy 68%. but today, the very same gallup poll shows only 39% of americans approve of how he's handling office. i can think of a few reasons all dealing with the president's failing policies and beginning with the fact that he's added more to this country's debt than pretty much all the presidenting before him combined. when he took office, the national death was 10$10.6 trillion and now it's $17.3 trillion for our children and our grand children, not looking good there either. moving on, thanks to the president and his brilliant agenda, the poverty rate has sky rocketed since he took office, then 13.2% of americans were living in poverty in 2009, today that number is 15% or 46.5 million p
yorker" magazine and his 17,000 word profile of president obama. >> i think he powerfully feels that the formative experience in his life in terms of foreign policy that is shaped all his thinking about his term in office is as recent as the iraq war. this is not somebody shaped by vietnam, not somebody shaped by bosnia or kosovo or rwanda. what's really shaping him is the notion of disastrous geopolitically and humanistally disastrous intervention in iraq makes him think not once but twice but many, many times over about getting involved in something like syria. >> rose: we conclude with a look inside the navy seals with lieutenant commander rorke denver. his book is called "dam few: making the modern seal warrior." i think people want to be part of something bigger than themselves. i think they want to come neat a program that has a historic attrition rate of 80%. those types of odds, that sounds like the right odds to me. >> rose: so like two out every ten make it or two out of three. >> right. so it's just one of those elite brotherhoods and you feel like you get to particip
on right now in an effort to commit america to the position that assad has to go. obama said that early in this fight. and perhaps regrets it today, but america has been stepping back from that position and stopped supplying arms or aid of any kind to the rebels. so that is in part the game that's being played here on the lead-up to this geneva 2 meeting. >> assad must go has been the position of the united states from the beginning or close to the beginning, but assad has two very potent and powerful regional allies in russia and iran. what is their steak in what happens going forward? >> both countries have their interest in preserving the assad regime which is why they are backing them, and i think as joshua correctly pointed out in his comments that without any pressure on the ground -- without any political power, military power to remove assad there's no reason for him to leaf. he is not going to stand up and say, well, myself and my family have been in power for 43 years and now it's time to transit to democracy. so he's riding very high in the political stakes in syria today. he
